The study was done in 2003 and the report is available in the members only
section of the website under "Info Files." I doubt the reasons for being
unable to offer health insurance to members has changed.

The answer to your last paragraph, first sentence is Yes. A study was done
by APG years ago and posted to the website. With the redesign of the
APGen.org website I don't know if it was kept or not. However the study said
that as an organization, we are too small, too dispersed, etc. to be
effective for group insurance.

If someone has more knowledge now or wants to revisit the question and can
do the research, I am sure the APG board would be willing to listen to a
solid proposal of terms.
